PowerPoint 2013: when Date, Slide Number or Footer don’t show – via: Academic Technology @ Palomar College

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/07/18

Coming from an Office pre 2000 background, I’m still amazed at how will things are hidden in modern Office versions.

Take the page numbers not showing on slides – Microsoft Community.

I bumped into that recently as well on a new blank presentation:

You see the placeholders at design time, but they don’t show up at presentation time.

The obvious action for me: Right click on each to see if there is anything about special formatting or hiding. It doesn’t work.

What does work is to:

  1. Go to the top of the Slide Masters
  2. Click the Ribbon
  3. Choose Insert
  4. Choose Text
  5. Choose Header & Footer
  6. Put a check marks for the place holders you want to be visible
